“Wonderful Neighborhood Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We went here for Mother's Day Brunch. The food was excellent and the service was very attentive. We sampled just about everything and most was wonderful. The only things I would recommend you skip are the Kabobs and the desserts. Both are undistinguished, but the rest was outstanding. We will be going back.

“Excellent Middle Eastern Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We ahd the hummos trio, spinach pies, falafel and grape leaves--all excellent, plus an excellent wine recommended by the staff. The real treat was that they brought us complimentary baklava and ice cream for dessert.

“Love this place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Have been here a number of times but keep neglecting to review it. The food is consistently good. The atmosphere is usually crazy, but that hasn't affected the service in my experience. Make a reservation on the weekends. Last night we had stuffed grape leaves, a wonderful cold eggplant dish and a great special platter with hummus, cucumber salad, chicken and rice. Always a fun evening.

“Tasty Food, Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Excellent bread made on premise, and love the garlic sauce. Shrimp entree and salmon entree were good and tasty. Can't say the noisy couple with two children were a great addition to the experience, but the restaurant cannot be responsible for this. I will go back and hope for a quieter experience, sans naughty little girl.
